Playspace Upgrades

Infrastructure surrounds us in Canberra. From roads and footpaths to streetlights, dog parks and playgrounds – just to name a few. Across the ACT playgrounds are being improved and new play activities are being delivered to provide children of all ages with fun, creative and engaging play experiences.

Whole of suburb play reviews

Following the whole of suburb play reviews recently undertaken in Richardson, Waramanga, Torrens, Narrabundah and Higgins, construction will commence in 2020 on delivering the new and improved upgrades. This has been guided by community feedback to provide a better mix of play that caters to more ages, abilities and play styles. The final designs are currently being prepared - stay tuned! For more information on the community engagement that was undertaken visit YourSay.
